White Death of Manimal

Clash of Man and his Environment

Kate Macdowell

Artist Kate MacDowell represents in her work a perfect reflection of our current day conflict of nature versus mankind. The idea of reincarnation brings an entire new perception to this art form and statement. Kate MacDowell explains in such detail of her work the death of ourselves as mankind within the death of nature and animals.
